I have alopecia, and I've had it my entire life. My hair recently started to grow, but my lack of hair is who I am. Being bald makes me feel powerful and strong.
Simply the ignorance and lack of compassion from others. Other people act like my baldness is an inconvenience to THEM, as if my personal choices were made with complete strangers in mind. When I was young, it was especially hard dealing with stares, because back then I wasn't yet aware that my alopecia truly was a blessing in disguise, and it took my journey in self growth to discover it.
I realized that I am truly unique. I am not someone who is easy to forget, because to many I'm "that bald girl". I still make the best of the ignorance of others, and use it to my advantage, wether it's making career connections or simply making a new friend.
You are in complete control. You are in charge of your own happiness, and absolutely NO ONE can take your happiness away unless you choose to let them. Look at your baldness in a different light. See your bald as beautiful. See your bald as power. See your bald as confidence.
